Our Carnal Hearts

Thu 11 Oct 7.30pm | Full £10 | Conc £6 | Age 16+

A Welcome! To you and to me and our spikey, sticky, shameful bits!

With a raucous chorus of original music, award-winning theatre maker Rachel Mars and four belting female singers bring you a gleeful, dark show about the hidden workings of envy. Part symphony, part exorcism, Our Carnal Hearts is a thrilling and murky celebration of desire, competition and all the times we screw each other over. Performed with a surround-sound choral score by Louise Mothersole, Our Carnal Hearts comes to the ShowRoom after sell outs across the UK and US and a Total Theatre Award.

“Wickedly funny… soothing and sharp-edged at the same time” ★★★★

Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
